Kernow, when I began my studies years ago I started w/ a few different books and son adopted a very similar haphazard approach and soon found myself confused. After some deliberation I opted to ignore the political BS and stick to the soldiers by reading the letters and diaries. This approach soon had me discovering that if I really wanted to get a lot out of the practice i would have to concentrate on one theatre or another and rapidly found myself concentrating on the western theatre. Reading what the men had to say about what was going onout east is a VERY intriguing way to see how the men thought the theatres coincided.

Picking up works on specific armies or Generals can be useful. Good Luck because I KNOW you'll get some interesting advice from the members here. In case you hadn't figured it out; we're all nuts.
